There are such a lot of causes to like the Met Gala and to be enthusiastic about this 12 months’s occasion, particularly. (Specified gown codes reminiscent of “gilded glamour” and “white tie”! Hosts reminiscent of Blake and Ryan! A return to the normal first-Monday-of-Could timing!) That stated, what I discover most intoxicating in regards to the annual, star-studded gathering is that the hair and make-up play simply as vital of an element in a star’s chosen ensemble as the style does—and actually, the extra ethereal and outlandish, the higher.
After a few years of cancellations and postponements, we’re excited to be again to some normalcy, and this 12 months’s theme, In America: An Anthology of Style, has us champing on the bit. Click on right here for a deep dive into the theme’s that means and different important-to-know particulars, however with the aforementioned gown code specs and the highlighted time interval of the Gilded Age of New York—aka the interval between 1870 to 1890—it’s certain to be a feast for style and sweetness lovers alike. Hold scrolling, and grasp on to your hats—the very best can’t-miss hair, make-up, and sweetness moments from the 2022 Met Gala are just under.
